    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, 1955. A vintage print with a matte finish, depicting the star in a dreamy-looking head shot as she looks off in the distance, signed in blue ballpoint ink in the lower right corner "To John, / My Friend and loyal fan / Marilyn," mounted to a mat board, verso has a black ink handwritten annotation reading "January 8, 1955 New York City;" included with a photocopied letter dated from 1988 indicating that a John W. Reilly took this picture and obtained the autograph from Marilyn herself. (Please note the signature is very faded, there is substantial tearing and crease marks on the right border which somewhat affects the inscription, and it has been glued to its mat as noted above.)
    Photograph: 13" x 9"; Mat: 18" x 12"
